Motorola ATRIX HD is ready for a soak test; will it be Android 4.1?

Motorola ATRIX HD is ready for a soak test; will it be Android 4.1?
Last month we found out that Motorola would be updating the Motorola ATRIX HD to Android 4.1. And that is why owners of the handset are excited to be hearing that they have been invited to take part in a soak test for the model. For those who are unaware, Motorola invites a few members of the Motorola Feedback Network who own a particular model, to take part in the testing of a new software build. By limiting the number of phones being tested, the manufacturer can more easily put a halt to things if a problem pops up, and if there is such a problem, it would only affect a small number of handsets.

While there is a chance that Android 4.1 is being tested on the Motorola ATRIX HD, there is no guarantee that this is the case. Motorola uses this method to test all updates ranging from major build changes to minor bug fixes. One requirement of those taking part in the soak test is that they have to keep their mouth shut about the testing and the software being loaded onto their phone.

Hopefully for owners of the Motorola ATRIX HD, it will be Android 4.1 being tested on the device. In fact, we will even keep our fingers and toes crossed for you.

Still thinking about getting one and this would be another incentive to get it. Don't need or want to dish out like $400+ for one of the newer quad-core phones that have features I'll never use. :/

i agree bro, i have a dual core droid incredible 4g lte running ics and it seems to be fast enough and has everything you could want on a phone......but the best part about it is i only paid 230 for it, instead of 400 or 500 dollars........also i must say battery life is pretty darn good on it :) I bet this atrix hd is a great phone as well....i wouldnt knock giving it a try

If you're on AT&T, go for it. This is a suprisingly inexpensive phone that has a lot of power. I think it started (at launch) at $99... so it may be even less today.

The phone may be nice under the hood but Motorola's recent actions regarding 2011 phones not getting updated should be taken into consideration as well.

The average consumer does not care about software updates. Probably only 20% of the owners of those phones know what "jelly bean" is in respect to android.
